from the crisis affecting the advanced economies. what can the imf do? well, we can help. we have refrained some of our instruments, effective credit line, for instance. the precautionary and liquidity credit lines which are both instruments aimed at comforting the country that is actually having the right set of policies in place, acts on tape as we say, in many countries have actually used those facilities, the case from mexico, the case for colombia, the case for polling, the case for morocco more recently with a precaution and liquidity lines. and together those not actually exceed the amount of commitment that we have for europe. okay, turning now to low income countries. they have performed relatively well through the crisis, and, frankly, when you look at numbers, starting from a low base admittedly of course, their numbers are generated in excess of any growth numbers we've seen in either advanced or emerging markets economies. but today they're more exposed to shifts in economic fortunes. i do not simply mean the potential fallout from the advanced economies, which would

, managing director of the imf since july a year ago. madam lagarde has obviously been playing a very central role in the management of the global economic and financial crises from its outset, from the prior position as minister i. manson rant and continuing of coors at the home of the imf. she famously attended some of her high school in earlier days here in bethesda. she is a lawyer by training, spent much of her career at a current mckinsey becoming chairman of the global executive committee and then chairman of their global strategic committee in 2004. she then joined the french government in 2005, originally as minister for foreign trade of them as minister for fisheries her brief time and then in june june 2007, just in time for the crisis to hit, she became the first woman to hold the post of minister of finance and economy of any g7 country. a rather notable milestone. she reminds me of is a couple of french men and a frenchwoman who can play a critical role in dealing with the world financial crisis going forward and indeed, that is the case. she should do at the same counse

the imf. so, i think we have a lot more clarity here. i think there were other points as well that were very useful, that emerged out of yesterday's press conference. in particular, the idea that ireland and portugal could actually be part of the ecb purchasing, and that would definitely assist their way of getting back to market access. that's an important issue for the financial markets. i think as well it was fairly clear that the governing counsel was not trying to get some form of seniority for this new purchase program. that, again, is very important because i think investors have been very concerned that ultimately the ecb might find it difficult to avoid being seen to be in some form of senior status for the purchases it makes. so, i think the level of commitment, the general tone of the press conference, always very important. now, concerning the specific point about what the esfs and esm actually do, and what happens next, that is still uncertain, frankly. a lot really is going to hinge upon what spain is going to be asking for here. in the case of spain, it's actually a
